2016 Winner: Jacques Cabaret

Now that RuPaul’s Drag Race made a fabulous leap into the mainstream, drag shows are even hotter draws within the LGBT community and outside it. Pink plastic dick-bedecked bachelorette parties commingle with queers at this lovingly weathered Bay Village holdover from gay culture’s cruisier days. It’s a nightly showcase for homegrown talent, like legendary emcee Kris Knievil, and a launch pad for future Drag Race royalty: Season 7 breakout Katya honed her hair flips here.
